The state of Missouri denied Trinity Lutheran Child Learning Center access to a public program that provided groundcover materials to organizations with playgrounds that made the playgrounds safer. The Church’s center was denied because it was “religious.” The case, Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia v. Comer, was argued before the Supreme Court this week and the case will help decide whether religious organizations can be denied equal treatment under state grant programs. Newly confirmed Justice Gorsuch heard the case and some conservatives believe the new justice will side with religious liberty.
